as we head into monday afternoon that's when we start to see the snow showers taking over. monday evening commute, we are expecting most of the area to be into some snow showers. could be heavy bursts of snow. you see the pink there. that's where it looks like new york city will be dealing with that changeover. so that's when we see the sleet and the freezing rain. most of long island should be in the rain that point, jersey shore should be in the rain. as we continue on to 11:00, most of the area is in the rain and some pockets of heavy rain as well. northern suburbs dealing with snow and some frozen precipitation. it all changes over to rain as we head into your monday night, early tuesday. we get a little bit of a break and then this comes through. that very heavy rain that we are expecting tuesday afternoon. this system is finally out of here by tuesday night. how much snow are we talking about before it changes over? for most of area we fall into the coating to 3 inches of snow. that's most of us. a few of our northern and western suburbs could see 3 to 6 inches potentially. how much rain afterwards? 1 to 2 inches of rain easily
so we have a lot of tricky weather heading our way. president's day mostly cloudy, afternoon snow changing over to a wintery mix. 35 degrees. that 35 comes late in the day. so we'll start out cold. temperatures will rise gradually. we should hit 35 in the evening. 54 for tuesday. again that comes with some heavy rain. then things sort of dry out a little bit wednesday, thursday, friday. so the rollercoaster ride of wacky weather continues. >> all right. we know what to expect. thank you. get weather updates by downloading the cbs weather app. send us your weather pictures and video. it is free and available in the itunes store. more from tonight's nba all-star game in canada. plus steve obermeyer sits down with the coach from manhattan college. and for the latest headlines

over the past four years, in february and march the jaspers are 31-11 in that stretch. coaches always talk about how they want to play great at the end of the season. >> yeah. >> you're doing it. what's happening? >> good players. that's the first thing. really it's we talk a lot about the process, and i think early in the year, november, december we'll take a loss to learn a lesson, and that means playing young guys in situations. maybe most coaches won't play young guys in. we try to think of the big picture early in the year and get them to understand. and i think they start to figure confidence. process. as that's going on, the other thing we do a great job of, we play more freely this time of year. aggressive. he try to turn you over that much more. a lot of programs and a lot of teams play closer to the vest. we are trying to speed the game force turnovers, get easy playing. >> you get about eight
per game right now. this has been an up and down season for you. maybe this year it's important for you guys to step it up. i guess hit the nitro button at the end of the season like before? >> yeah, we have had some injuries that really have hurt us. three of our top seven or six are out. but young guys have stepped up and done some good things. it's really important to capitalize on every opportunity we can, and that's our guys are being bought into the system and understanding what their job is and doing a great job with it. >> every year some team in every expectations. this year that would be monmouth. ucla, usc, georgetown, notre dame. last 13 games, and that was to you. >> yeah. >> so tomorrow night do we atmosphere?
he has built that program. we became coaches together about two weeks of each other. what he has done is phenomenal. he built it from the ground up. the atmosphere tomorrow is going to be one of the toughest we have played in. they do a great job of packing their fans in, students in. their arena is unbelievable. the fact that we were fortunate to beat them last time will add to that. >> their rpi is 30, which is amazing. how much more affirming is that for your squad? >> no doubt about it. it's a great win. this time of year your team has its confidence. a win here, a win there isn't going to matter. you want to be competitive. that's the key. not to start thinking, you know, way ahead of it, but you almost sometimes it's scary if you beat a team twice in the regular season you don't want to see them in the post-season. you have to be careful. >> it seems like the story with monmouth this year is not as
it's about been about their mob bench. >> yeah. >> we saw recently iona got a little chippy ar wards. >> yeah? i wanted to get an opposing coach's reaction to the mob bench. what do you think? >> you have to have a good team to have a mob bench. >> that's what you think. >> they have that. look how much attention, exposure it brought for the college. it's been within the game. i think it's been pure. i think it's guys having fun at the end of the bench. some coaches might not like it. but listen, if the coach of the program is okay with it, there is nothing wrong with it. i know some of those guys, they are great kids. they come to practice. they work. i think they have added their own spin to the organization. they have really done a nice job with it. the most important thing is you have to be good. and they are good. >> some would say it's antics. >> yeah. >> and it takes attention away from the actual play on the court. >> um-hmm. >> where is that line drawn? what is the line of going too far? >> well, the line of going too far comes into play if you don't
if you don't achieve your goals to do -- >> so it's a approximate >> it is. only time people talking about it negatively is when you lose. they say the bench. at the end of the day they are kids having fun. there is nothing wrong with that. i don't think they are getting carried away. i have never seen them get carried away. if the coach of the team is okay with it, you should be okay. >> your top scorer is shane richard. one of the original recruits. fourth in the conference in scoring and really underrecruited. he was coming out of new york city as a guy who was born, raised in new york city. you are a new york city kid. >> yes. >> does that make things a little more advantageous? >> it does. any time you can talk about representing where you are from, a new york city kid playing in new york city, playing in the about. you look at shane, you know, obviously myself being from new york, him being from new york, that's an instant connection.
>> you know the same delis. >> you say pursuit. just like new yorkers. >> yeah, yeah. so you have a guy like shane who has an unbelievable work ethics. he is such a perfectionist. he has gotten better and better every year and he is going to go down as one of the manhattan all-time greats. he didn't have any scholarship offers out of high school. >> right. that's the thing. things have definitely changed. things changed since you played at kentucky when guys were playing for four years. >> a now a cup of coffee. >> yeah. you have some older guys in there. 20 , 21 years old. your four year seniors. does it help you when you get into the tournament when you are physically or mentally more stable? >> you know, i think there is no stub statute for experience. talent. everyone has to have talent. i think why you are seeing so much parity in college basketball especially is bus you
at mid-major schools that are terrific basketball players. sometimes they may not have the talent of the terrific one and done guys, but their experience is "the x factor." when you have guys who know not what to do, but more importantly not what to do, there is not a coach in the world that doesn't want that. combine that with talent, you have a special formula there. >> you are shaking your head. >> we were talking about italian food. >> you don't like italian food? you are missing out on chicken parm. it's the pastas i am not down for. i will take the meatballs. >> we will work on that. >> i like it. >> all right. >> still, can we talk basketball? >> yeah. i'm over it now. >> are you sure you are over this? honestly, all right. rick patino. >> yes. >> your good friend? >> yes. >> good coach. he has been asked about leaving louisville over and over again. this week he said i don't know. it seems like rumors of him
maybe does this seem -- feel a little bit different? >> i don't think so. when you have had the success that coach patino has and when you have accomplished what he has accomplished, there will always be people speculating he is moving on. people are always going to want him as a coach. he is such a great coach. you are going to hear that about all great coaches across the country. coach cal perry. i think it just comes with the turf. >> he's got a contract until 2025, you know, forever. but if he does decide to hang it up or leave louisville does it feel like this would be it for him? >> i wouldn't know. but i just, you know, i know from time working with him how passionate he is about basketball. basketball is a part of his life. i can't ever imagine coach patino not coaching. that's just me personally. again, i don't know his situation. >> you're saying you have to drag him off the court? >> yeah. pretty much. >> just like you, i would imagine? >> no doubt about it.
i want to talk about basketball in this area. st. john's. hot program in the area. it's not been a very good season for st. john's. lost 16 straight. when they are not good, what impact does that have on the other schools in the area? >> well, i think the coach has done an excellent job of rebranding the program. he has a great recruiting class. a great job of get thing the name back to where it was. i think when st. john's is up, it obviously brings more attention to the metropolitan area and the new york area. floss doubt in my mind coach mullen will have that program where he wants it back up and being one of the perennial big east powers. when that happens, that's good for everyone involved. that doesn't mean other programs can't be successful without them either. >> do you think you can win me over on italian food? >> absolutely. i will take you after this. >> we have some time after in. >> i don't know if my
>> i am going to feel like a third wheel. steve masiello, good luck in the game. best of luck to you as you advance. hopefully, third straight tournament for you. >> and we got to get you only raviolis. here. the rangers and flyers, i guess upgraded their rivalry tonight. this was new york's response to week. 32 penalty minutes in the opening period. safe to say this he had revenge on their minds. derek stepan admitted that both teams had some unsettled business to take care of, which they did. check out that pass from carello. the duo combining for another one on the power play makes it 3-0. the rangers have won five of six. 3-1 the final from msg tonight.
